Chase freedom cash back

I just received this card last month.  Got the 100 back after the first 500 spent in 3 months deal.  My first statement just cut this evening and there was 10,982 points in the rewards column I used it for a statement credit.  I have put over 1 thousand through it this month,  it says it will take 3-4 days to apply it to my acct.  Another thing I thought was cool was I gave me the 1% on the first 500 too instead of taking the first 500 points for the cash back.  Its only a extra 5 bucks but I was happy about it.  Will pushing 1k a month help for cli if they see I have that every month.  I pif every 2 weeks just not to max it out?  It sucks but a 500cl I kinda have too.

Re: Chase freedom cash back

It might, it might not. But since you're pushing more than your limit every month you use that as a really good reason as to why you're requesting the CLI. From my understanding, lenders do not like people making multiple payments every month because it cost them every time you make a payment online. 

 

If a CLI fails, you can always call the executive office and speak with them (I like to follow the chain of command when dealing with companies instead of going straight to the higher ups) and I've heard a lot of people who has had success with that. But I think you have to wait at least 6 months before requesting a CLI from Chase.

Re: Chase freedom cash back

Try not to let your card report as maxed out.

Does it cost if you send them a payment from your online bill pay (ie using Chase online bill pay to pay Freedom or any other credit card)???

I make multiple payments typically just to sort of "pay as I go".
